I am doing drawings for my firm and the building as it exists has exposed structural flooring that you can see the ribbing of the structure in the ceiling plan.  I was wondering if it is at all possible to make it so I can see the lines in the reflected ceiling plan of the ribs... It is showing as blank, but need my drawings to show the exposed structural flooring for the demolition plans we are doing.  Is this a setting or something that needs to be adjusted, or is it impossible?

The quick answer is to specify a fill pattern for the material of the bottom layer of the floor / roof but you won't get the vaiable spacing that would be true to the actual deck.

 

Also Autodesk seems to think that only floors use steel deck and roofs do not so if you want to use steel deck in a roof you have to use a floor element instead. Always found that weird. Even in 2013 . . . still no steel deck layer in roof structure.

Well this makes things difficult, but thank you. Good and bad to know this is the case... Looks like I am going to have to go back to the ways of AutoCAD and just put in some detail lines :-/

From your HELP:

Changing Line Styles for a View Underlay

 
 
 

 

When you use a level as an underlay in the current view and use the Linework tool on the edges of elements from that level, the elements become part of the current view, and you can modify them. See View Properties.

For example, in a Level 1 floor plan view, you can specify Level 2 as an underlay. If Level 2 has a roof, you can select the roof in the plan view and then modify it. You can even underlay the same level as the view to select a ceiling or beams or other elements that are not shown in the view. You can use the Overhead line style for tracing underlays or define your own line style. (See Line Styles and Halftone/Underlay.)

 

You can just point to lines to make them overhead lines in your view.
